Training A-Z

'Sometimes my brain hurts' - Primary Mental Health for KS1 + KS2

A valuable training opportunity as part of our response to what CYP have said in the OPS about emotional health and wellbeing as well as something that will count towards schools accreditation for GHLL. This course will lift the lid on the mystery that surrounds mental health and shows teachers and support staff how to deliver sessions that encourage children to talk about mental health.

Delegates will each receive a copy of The Primary Mental Health Handbook. It is a very comprehensive resource with background reading and information, a DVD and lesson plans for Key Stage 2. The handbook contains all the worksheets and plans that may be photocopied and staff attending the training will have the opportunity to try out some of the activities to enable them to feel more confident.

Please note that the £30 GHLL charge for this course is a contribution towards the cost of the Primary Mental Health Handbook.

Practise Positive Playtimes

This interactive CPD session shares the implementation, and outcomes, of GHLL’s positive playtimes practice. With the introduction of zoned playgrounds, that directly link to the ‘5 ways of wellbeing’, incidents of isolation and poor behaviour have dropped dramatically. These zones not only provide a wellbeing boost for all pupils, but also through planning with the midday supervisors, enable more vulnerable pupils to get targeted boosts in their specific areas of need. This Positive Playgrounds practice not only gives schools the tools to target pupils who need wellbeing boosts, but also shares what wellbeing is, why it is important and how to assess the wellbeing impact you currently have on your pupils.

Get ready to connect, be active, know yourselves, learn something new and give your time
